Product Description

The MCH Duty sets a new standard for a resilient, high-performance flashlight designed to withstand challenging conditions. With its formidable power, adaptability, configurability, unwavering dependability, and unparalleled durability, the MCH Duty surpasses all expectations and stands alone as an unrivaled product in its category.


The MCH Duty is fully programmable, by the end user. This allows you, for the first time, full control over the output of the flashlight. Every MCH ships from the factory in Mode 1. But there are 4 other modes you can select, based on your needs. And you can change the programming anytime you want. So the MCH is more configurable than ever before.

Mode 1: High-only (100%)

Mode 2: Low (10%), High (100%)

Mode 3: High (100%), Low (10%)

Mode 4: Very Low (5%), Medium (30%), High (100%)

Mode 5: High (100%),  Medium (30%), Very Low (5%)

Programming is incredibly simple and intuitive. CLICK HERE to see the informational video on those details.

Due to its 50,000 Candela, the MCH Duty light gives you the unique ability to not only push light far into the night but to do so with more expansive coverage than anything else in its class. This gives you world-class situational awareness, defeats dead space, and lights up shadows. It completely renders a would-be-aggressors night-adapted vision useless. In short, it overwhelms the situation with light and performs precisely as you want a handheld, hard-use light to perform. MCH Duty gives you a capability you have never had.

In a lower-power mode, the MCH Duty becomes a wonderful admin flashlight with very extended run times. For example, one can run the Duty in “low” power mode (10% output) for most of the night on a fresh battery charge.

As such, this is the most versatile light Cloud Defensive has ever produced.

Tail Cap Configurations:

Sporting the most diverse group of users of any MCH light offered, the MCH Duty needed to be highly configurable. Being equally at home in your glove box as it is on your nightstand or in your plate carrier, Cloud ensured you could set up the tail of the light in a way that best suits your need.

Regardless of your intended use, know your MCH allows you to carefully select from an industry-first (and Patented) Adjustable Negligent Discharge protection system. Each light ships with the full ND Protection package and the user can now configure the tail cap for their respective needs. Be it deep-pocket carry, belt carry, or being at home on your plate carrier, the MCH Duty is built for the task. And fully configurable to what you need. If your need changes, you just adjust the ND Protection accordingly with parts you already have.

Battery Changing with Ease:

With the all-new MCH, you are able to easily change the battery from the light head side of the MCH. The positive end always goes to the front of the light. And there is reverse polarity protection built in just in case.

The Full-size MCH uses 1 Lithium Ion, Rechargeable, Flat-top, Unprotected 18650 which is included. It is also compatible with most button-top unprotected cells. The Full-size MCH has very limited compatibility with Protected cells. Do not assume compatibility with those. Cloud favors the Unprotected cells due to the substantial performance increases.

The MCH lights also now accept CR123 batteries. The use of CR123 batteries will absolutely result in lower output and shorter run times. That is purely a function of CR123 cells being very inferior to Cloud’s rechargeable cells. But this new CR123 capability is perfect for use in emergency situations.

Pocket Clip:

The MCH ships with a standard, metal deep-carry pocket clip that is made from spring steel and then heat-treated and black nitride plated. The MCH Duty was not designed or optimized for pocket carry but Cloud wanted to give you that ability, should you need it.


  • UI2 Charger
